Ed Templeton doesn’t just put you on Toy Machine. It is a thoughtful, and altogether meaningful move for one’s career when Ed makes that move and supports your placement on the team. Collin Provost is the kind of skater though who — hailing from Ed’s hometown of HB — makes Ed’s job easy. With a throwback, very committed, very authentic approach to skateboarding, Collin reminds one what skateboarding is about. His parts in Stay Gold and more recently in Emerica’s Made have proven that.
We drove up to Collin’s place in Long Beach for a skate, music, and a beer to immerse ourselves in his world. A few lines at North Park and a sunset jam with the boys. As he quickly emerges as one of the raddest skaters in the world.
